...although I quite liked the story of multitasking by getting engaged and hunting for some toilet roll at the same time too!

Neil Young’s Homegrown, one of the great "Holy Grails" of his unreleased catalogue, will finally see the light of day some 46 years after its recording.

The twelve-track studio set will be released June 19 on all formats, via Reprise Records, the Warner Music Group label and Young announced Friday.

In a letter posted to the Neil Young Archives, the legendary Canadian rocker admits Homegrown was the one that got away for far too long.

“I apologize,” he writes. “This album Homegrown should have been there for you a couple of years after Harvest. It’s the sad side of a love affair. The damage done. The heartache. I just couldn’t listen to it. I wanted to move on. So I kept it to myself, hidden away in the vault, on the shelf, in the back of my mind….but I should have shared it.

The album, he concedes, is “actually beautiful. That’s why I made it in the first place. Sometimes life hurts. You know what I mean. This is the one that got away.”

Recorded in analog in 1974 and early 1975, Homegrown was shelved in favor of the 1973-recorded Tonight’s The Night. In Young’s own words, it’s the unheard bridge between Harvest and Comes A Time.

Some of its songs turned up as different mixes on other releases, such as “Star of Bethlehem” (on 1977’s American Stars ‘n Bars), “Little Wing” and “This Old Homestead” (on 1980’s Hawks & Doves), and “White Line” (on 1990’s Ragged Glory).

It’s important to remember how quickly Young worked in the mid-Seventies, churning out songs at a much faster pace than his label could release them (and after the commercial failure of 1973’s live LP Time Fades Away and 1974’s brilliantly depressive On the Beach, Homegrown was a guaranteed seller they were desperate for). Young was evolving so rapidly that every few months became its own era. By the time he released Tonight’s the Night, he was already hunkered down in Malibu, reuniting with Crazy Horse and new guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro to create Zuma. Homegrown was a record that most musicians could have built a career on, but for Young, who was relentlessly looking forward, it was already in the rearview mirror.
